    I recently had my instrument cluster housing bezel "restored" at Instrument Specialties.
    I was pretty excited to open the box only to be disappointed.

    Can anyone with an original 73 burlwood bezel tell me if:
    The turn signal openings are supposed to be chromed?
    The mounting screw openings are supposed to be chromed?

    I'm returning the bezel today. Crap, it''s a long way from AZ to RI!

    Thank you McCune,
    From your photo, all the openings have the chrome trim.

    Curious of what was wrong with it?
    Was the cost reasonable?
    Because I need to get a couple redone and I don't want to have to do it twice.
    Thanks

    Can you take some detail pics showing the paint lines? The screw hole openings should be black. Turn signal holes should be chrome. All gauge opening chrome should look like beads with a black-out to lens.
